Acting Director General Tim Davie walks out of Sky interview

Tim Davie: appointed to succeed John Smith as chief executive of BBC Worldwide in Oct 2012With the crisis surrounding the BBC showing no signs of abating this morning acting Director General Tim Davie, the former P&G and PepsiCo marketer, has walked out of an interview with Sky News. His speedy exit, as the cameras continued to roll, followed BBC Helen Boaden, the BBC’s director of news, and Stephen Mitchell, deputy head of news, stepping aside earlier this morning.

However, the BBC had denied he walked out of his interview and said that the interview had overrun. He certainly looked like he was in a rush.
